Toyota Yaris Cross Dilancarkan Di Jepun Dari RM71,000

Ini dia, satu lagi kenderaan kompak dari Toyota. Ini adalah Yaris Cross yang datang hangat dibelakang Corolla Cross. Ya, ini adalah dua kenderaan yang berbeza jika anda berfikir bahawa mereka kelihatan sama. Corolla Cross dilancarkan sebagai kenderaan pemasangan tempatan untuk pasaran Thailand pada bulan Julai 2020 dan ada petunjuk bahawa ia akan segera tiba di Malaysia.

Corolla Cross dibina berdasarkan Toyota Global Architecture, khususnya platform GA-B. Ini adalah platform yang sama dengan sedan Corolla Altis dan CH-R. Walau bagaimanapun, gaya ini mengikuti banyak petunjuk yang ditetapkan oleh Toyota RAV4 generasi ke-5 dengan lengkungan roda petak dan cladding badan tebal.

Yaris hatchback terbaharu dikeluarkan di Jepun pada Februari 2020 dan ini adalah versi terbaharu Yaris berbanding model Yaris yang kini dijual di Malaysia. Berukuran besar untuk bersaing dengan crossover Proton X50 dan Perodua ‘Rocky’ yang akan datang, Toyota Crossover terbaharu ini mungkin tidak akan tiba di Malaysia kerana mungkin Corolla Cross yang akan dilancarkan di Malaysia.

Inilah sebabnya mengapa pembeli kereta kelas menengah Malaysia akan selalu ditinggalkan dengan pilihan terhad kerana program kereta ‘nasional’ akan mengelakkan pesaing segera melancarkan kereta mereka kerana insentif cukai tersuai yang tidak akan memihak kepada jenama kereta BUKAN-Nasional .

Sebagai contoh, crossover Daihatsu Taft yang dilancarkan di Jepun baru-baru ini dengan 18,000 unit dijual hanya pada bulan pertama. Kenderaan bersaiz kompak ini menggunakan enjin petrol 3 silinder 658cc yang menghasilkan 51hp atau 63hp yang kuat jika pilihan turbo. Kedua-dua enjin dipadankan dengan transmisi CVT yang hanya menggerakkan roda depan atau keempat-empat roda pada model terpilih. Bermula hanya 1,353,000 yen (kira-kira RM53,500) ini pasti menjadi rebutan pemandu muda bujang Malaysia dan beberapa keluarga satu-kanak. Fikirkanlah, ini boleh menjadi model pengganti Perodua Kenari yang sudah tua dan semakin dilupakan.

KENYATAAN MEDIA:

Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) has just announced today, 31st August 2020, the release of the Yaris Cross, a new-model compact SUV. The Yaris Cross will be available through Toyota dealers nationwide immediately. 

The development of the new-generation Yaris Cross aims to pursue new value as a compact SUV that not only offers convenience but also carries on the nimble driving, advanced security and safety technology, and superior fuel economy features of the Yaris series.

Specifically, as with the Yaris, the all-new Yaris Cross is Toyota’s first compact vehicle to adopt the TNGA platform (GA-B). As a package that can make full use of this performance, in addition to the “condensed” design, the new model features lean, well-balanced and refined proportions that express the robustness and presence unique to an SUV. Although a compact SUV, the Yaris Cross offers easy-to-use and uncompromising luggage room that supports the active lifestyle of its driver and passengers.

A 4WD (four-wheel drive) system affords a seamless driving performance for a wide range of activities from urban driving to leisure activities. The gasoline-powered model is loaded with functions that offer a satisfying SUV driving performance, including ‘Multi-terrain Select’ that allows the driver to choose between three modes to adjust to road surface conditions. Toyota is also offering HEV models featuring the E-Four (electric 4WD system) for the first time on a compact car. Furthermore, the hybrid variant achieves world-class, top level fuel economy for its class (2WD, 30.8 km/L*1 in WLTC mode) that surpasses what is the typical performance of an SUV.

For security and safety technologies, Toyota Safety Sense, the company’s newest active safety package, comes as a standard feature (excluding X “B package”). The decision from Toyota to equip the all-new vehicle with Toyota’s latest technologies and features came following the Yaris because many consumers choose to drive compact class cars. This includes Toyota Teammate*2 Advanced Park, an advanced driving support system, including Full Speed Range Radar Cruise Control that supports driving behind another car and an Adaptive Hi-beam System (AHS).

The Yaris Cross renews the traditional concept of a compact SUV, including its driving performance, convenience and safety functions. It will provide new value as an urban-type SUV imbued with the individuality and lifestyle of the driver and its passengers.
